Care about…

On GLOBAL TIGER DAY…

 
No one will protect what they don’t

 
care about ; & no one will care about

 
what they have never experienced.

 
                             ~ ` ~  David Attenborough

Soul’s Freedom…

 

          Witness & stand back 
         from nature,
                 that is the first step to 

                                the soul’s 
                          freedom.

~ ` ~ Sri Aurobindo

Yoga…

What does it take to actually be a

yogi, really?

Not spiritual attainment or Asana performance,

but the beautiful embrace of your

own reality.

                ~ ` ~  Mark Whit well

I Exist…

 

  I exist as I am, that is enough,


if no other in the world be aware,
I sit content,


and if each and all be aware,


I sit content.


~ ` ~   Walt Whitman

Fade away…?

 

Life, it seems, will fade away

Drifting further every day

Getting lost within myself

Nothing matters, no one else…

 

No one but me can save myself, but it’s too late

Now I can’t think, think why I should even try…

Chief…

 

The torn boughs trailing

O’er the tusks…aslant

The saplings reeling in the path

He trod,

Declares his might- our lord

The Elephant

Chief of the ways of

God…

Faithful…

 

 

I meant what I said,
and I said what I meant.
An elephant is faithful,
one hundred percent.

Forest…

         

 

 

                        How impossible it is to walk though the forest 

 

                                        without telegraphing

Journey…

 

                            The journey to understand the

                               true nature of reality requires no paper map,

                         no metal compass, and no breadcrumb

                              left by others.

 

                                       The true journey is one that is travelled

                                           with an inner GPS fully activated,

                                  and a mind as open as a parachute

                                  … perfectly capable of landing exactly

                                                                             where you’re meant to be.

Stop Looking…

   

 

                   Stop looking for happiness

 
                              in the same place you

 
                                           lost it.

Gold…

 

 

 

 

 “If gold has been prized because it is the most inert element,

                  changeless and incorruptible, water is prized for the

 

                  opposite reason — its fluidity, mobility, changeability that make it a necessity and a metaphor for life itself.

                                       To value gold over water is to

                         value economy over ecology, that which

                               can be locked up over that which connects all things.”

Alive…

It is beautiful to be

sensitive…

And if you are more

sensitive…

You will be more 

Alive…

then more life will

Enter your inner being.

We are feeling vacant, empty and

we keep saying life is….empty

 

We are not filling it…

Be more alive, and you will be more Divine.

Be totally alive,

and there is no death for you…

A Hug…

         

 

           Hugging is the ideal gift.

               Great for any occasion, fun to give and receive,

                    shows you care, comes with its own wrapping and,

                    of course, is fully returnable. Hugging is practically perfect.

                       No batteries to wear out, inflation-proof, nonfattening,

                        no monthly payments, theft-proof and nontaxable.”
